    My cats eats too much and the other one suffers, help

    I have two cats, one eats way too much and the other is thin...I have tried to decrease there meals amount, however the overweight one just eats it all and the other is getting thinner....I have them on low calorie dried food, but I have run out of ideas....If I just leave the food on the floor, with plenty in the bowl, then at least the thin one can eat, as he is a older cats, however I am not sure if I can tolerate the larger one getting any bigger...Any input would be very helpful.

    You may try to lock them in different rooms while feeding them. THe older cat should be on a senior forumula food. Call your vet to ask for a good one. Also have your vet check him out. It could be other reasons he is getting thin.

    Thank you for the reply......unfortunately I am not sure what to do when I am at work, as I know that both my cats like to eat throughout the day. I will call the vet though, thanks

    try feeding them once in seperate rooms,(take the bowl away) then feed them again wen you get back from work. theyll learn to eat wut they want before you take the bowl away.

    hope it works out,

    How many hours are you gone in a day? If its not too long I would say your best solution is to separate them and If you could possibly hold off food when your gone and come home at lunchtime if thats possible to feed? Otherwise I think your stuck giving a large quantity while your gone. Its not always an easy solution. I'm sure you'll think of something.
